>From Prof. Clare Casteel- contact Clare Casteel at ccasteel from ucdavis.edu.
*Postdoctoral position – University of California Davis*
*plant-virus interactions, plant-vector interactions, molecular biology,
A postdoctoral position is available in the Casteel lab at UC Davis,
starting after January 2018. The focus of this NSF funded position is on
elucidating the key molecular mechanisms that mediate plant-virus-vector
interactions and investigating the function of the protein NIa-Pro across
potyvirus genomes and plant genomes. The Casteel lab uses a combination of
molecular biology, genetics, genomics and biochemistry together with field
and laboratory trials to answer ecologically relevant questions.
Applicants for the postdoctoral position should be within 2 years of
receiving their PhD and be available to start before September 2018. Applicants
must be able to do independent research, have good written and verbal
skills, and must be highly self-motivated. I am particularly interested in
candidates that have a strong background in molecular biology/biochemistry,
GWAS, virology, plant-vector interactions, bioinformatics/large data sets,
or protein-protein interactions.

*How to Apply:*
Qualified candidates should submit the following to ccasteel from ucdavis.edu: *a
short cover letter that includes research interests and experience (<1
page), curriculum vitae, and contact information for three referees.*
The subject of the email should be “Postdoc position: Plant-vector
interactions” and each file submitted should start with your last name in
the title. For more information contact Clare Casteel at
ccasteel from ucdavis.edu.
